  1. Lemon bars you should call up Susiecakes for (if they still make them). Mac and cheese, that's Kate Mantilini. There's precious little else on the menu that would make me go there, but their mac and cheese is killer.

      1. re: tablefor1

        Second Joan's for the mac n cheese. They cater so I'm sure they can make any quantity you need. I bet they would also do lemon bars.

      2. Check with Auntie Em's. Pretty sure they have both.

        1. Bay Cities Deli in SaMo would be a good one to try for good mac and likely to do large quantities.

          for decadent with truffle oil, try Elements Kitchen in Pasadena.

          Nook Bistro does a great panko crusted version - call and see if they can do in large quantity...

          Mastro's Steakhouse does a gorgonzola mac... again, call to find out.

          i'm not a fan, but people like Pete's downtown's gourmet mac'n'cheese.

          honestly, though i may get flogged, Koo Koo Roo does an incredible mac'n'cheese, though not gourmet, just rich, crusty, and good.

          LEMON BARS:
          Surfas does Lavender Lemon Bars... need to call ahead to order

          Jamaica's Cakes fabulous

          Hotcakes Bakery

          Europane (if you'd prefer valley)

            These are great suggestions, and I fully agree with your rec of Koo Koo Roo.

          2. Just had a really good mac & cheese that had garlic and some herbs from Blue Star Cafe.
            15th Street just west of Sante Fe in Downtown LA. I also had a really good Lemon Pudding thing from Sweets for the Soul in Atwater on Glendale Blvd.
